Her sister Dakota may have starred in Marc Jacobs' "Oh Lola" ads last year, but now it's the YOUNGER Fanning, Elle, who's stealing the spotlight with a brand new perfume campaign of her own. The 14-year-old actress is the latest face of "Lolita Lempicka," repping the French beauty brand's classic fragrance. (Pause for a moment to contemplate just HOW similar these two perfume names are...coincidence?! We think not.) With her porcelain complexion, angelic features, and long golden hair, it's no surprise Elle's Virgin Suicides-esque good looks have seriously enchanted the fashion world...ahem, despite the fact that she's not even old enough to have a driver's license yet! Ever since her quirky-cool Marc by Marc Jacobs ads from last year, we've been anxiously waiting to see which big name brand would snatch Elle up next. Now that we've watched the gorgeously haunting fragrance film for "Lolita Lempicka," let's just say some things really are worth waiting for.

Here's the thing about Elizabeth Olsen. The actress (and younger sis of MK&A) quite literally has fashion in her blood, whether she's working it in her sisters' labels or in goods from Mulberry, Chanel, or Pucci. But it's a true testament to her effortless, casual style that Lizzy looks just as awesome in accessible (read: affordable) basics as she does in these red carpet looks. Along with gracing the cover of ASOS magazine, this is the girl who makes denim cutoffs, ratty t-shirts and head scarves look stylish, after all. So it shouldn't come as TOO much of a surprise, then, that the 23-year-old is totally gorgeous at the New York premiere of her new flick Liberal Arts... NOT decked out in designer, but instead wearing two of our favorite fast fashion labels. She looks ladylike in a leather pencil skirt from ASOS paired with a white Topshop blazer and classic strappy sandals. Who knew? It IS possible to score a movie premiere outfit for less than $300.
Behind the scenes of Lana Dey Rey's new H&M commercial.

From the swirling rumors to the official announcement to the actual images, we've been following Lana Dey Rey's H&M campaign every.step.of.the.way. Whew! So now that the behind the scenes clip has officially dropped for the commercial, you didn't think we'd leave you hanging, did you? Yeah, right. The Swedish retail giant has just released a BTS video of the NYC crooner for the brand's upcoming clip, and it's a past-perfect whirlwind of old meets new. H&M may be on the forefront of fast fashion, but leave it to Lana to work the fuzzy peach sweaters, slim denim, and printed separates with her trademark retro touch. Yes, bouffant, pout, and pointy nails included.

I'd like to thank soul sister Melanie Fiona for making my <3 really feel thaaangs. I'd also like to thank her for executing fab fashion-y ferocity. With a penchant for throwing on some Louboutins, giving some major side-eye behind her Prada sunnies, and a perfect MAC pout, homegirl's style game is on point. You go, gurl. Additionally, my face almoooost started to leak when I first saw her latest music video for "Wrong Side of a Love Song", which means she's uber talented because I haven't bawled since Ginger Spice quit the Spice Girls/Britney shaved her head. #TeenTrainwreck So, here's my little present to all of you experiencing post-NYFW depression. Happy Favorite Thangs' Monday, y'all!

Despite Becka Diamond's moody, head-turning numbers (see: her closet overflowing with Rick Owens) and penchant for killer accessories (no pun intended: homegirl loves a good spike-y statement piece), she's not an intimidating side-eye-inducing It Girl. She's a diamond, forrealz. Once upon a time, at probably about 4 a.m., I got the liquid courage to approach/stumble toward Diamond, who was obvi looking all kinds of gothic gorg perched behind a DJ both at some surely hipper-than-thou downtown NYC boite for what I don't remember. #BlameItOnTheAlcohol Ever since then, I've been in head-over-Alex-Wang-heels for Diamond. You've probs seen her giving a good blood-red lipped pout and a smokey eye in many a fashion spread. Or, if you got the coveted invite, spinning grunge-y gems and obscure awesomeness at a slew of exclusive parties. This week, the recent LA transplant launched her very own website, 13:13, featuring immaculate playlists and detailing Diamond's fab fashion-y life and her fab friends. Yeah, we're in <3. I got Ms. Diamond to spill all of the fashion-y beans for this week's Favorite Things, and girllll, they sparkle. Happy NYFW!
Lady Gaga in her London wedding dress look.

A meat dress is shocking, but there's really something about an out of context wedding dress that gets people all riled up. Lady Gaga sported her bridal best to a party celebrating the Paralympic games closing ceremonies, at which both Rihanna and Jay-Z performed, in London last night, and while the gown was certainly not the kind of demure look a lot of women are going for, it was certainly chic. This also isn't the first time Mama Monster has made the rounds in nuptial attire--she wore her mother's wedding dress in the video for "You and I," and was recently spotted trying on dresses with some girlfriends (which of course set the internet all aflutter). The white gown featured a peplum and a train along with the aforementioned super revealing sweetheart (and then some) neckline, and although we have no word yet on who designed the masterpiece, we have some ideas. Gaga also paired the gown with a veil-turned-turban, a veeery interesting accessory if we do say so ourselves.
There's something very Madonna about the look, which, although it looks nothing like the material girl's notorious 1984 VMA dress, it's the attitude that's similar. Nothing like going out on a night on the town in a dress that would typically be worn on a more serious, albeit still joyful, occasion.
What do you think of Lady Gaga's wedding gown?

Okay now it's official. EVERYONE is jumping on the Miley Cyrus haircut train (and why shouldn't they!?). This time, it's our favorite Brooklynite, Lena Dunham. The star/creator of HBO's Girls showed up to Rachel Antonoff's Spring 2013 Fashion Week presentation yesterday having chopped off her hair a mere six hours before! She hinted about the upcoming change just a day earlier, but we never thought it would come so soon. After wrapping up filming for the second season of Girls, Lena tweeted "time to do something self destructive vis a vis my hair!" Not to keep us in suspense, she later posted a pic on Twitter, saying "I Miley'd the s*** out of this Saturday."
Rita Ora went from wearing a custom Pucci jumpsuit to a white feathered mermaid style gown to present at the VMAs.
We've already sung many praises for Rita Ora's custom, super sparkly Pucci jumpsuit since we first clapped eyes on it on the VMA red carpet yesterday. Besides being unbelievably lavish and completely perfect for Rita, the partially sheer jumper was also part of a lace and sheer trend that we're totally planning to incorporate into our own wardrobes this fall. We thought she had reached--no pun intended--sheer sartorial perfection, but then the show started and she came on stage to present the award for Best Male Video and. We. Died. Rita had changed out of her jumpsuit and into a GORG Stephane Rolland couture gown in a pure, angelic white, with black harness-style detailing and feathered shoulders. It's basically the most amazing dress we have ever seen. We're also totally into the fact that Rita wore makeup that could transition between the two totally different looks. Maybe she just couldn't decide which one to wear? We wouldn't have been able to either. Watch Rita's interview with Red Carpet Report host Holland Roden and get the low down, and a closer look, on her red carpet outfit.
With Taylor in classic white and Kat in vibrant burgundy, it's hard to tell who wore a suit to the VMAs better.
OK guys, get ready for one of our toughest Who Wore It Better-s of all time. Both girls are major faves, both took a risk on the VMA carpet, and both looked totally freaking amazing. We're talking, of course, about Taylor Swift and Kat Graham, two MTV Style staples decided to wear the pants this year--literally. It's funny how a slim, perfectly tailored suit can make a pretty girl look even more feminine than the most princess-like of gowns, but that's really how we felt about the night's menswear inspired evening wear. We're so used to seeing Taylor in demure, sparkly Cinderella gowns, it was something of a relief to see her in something so simple, structured, and stark as a white suit. Kat Graham, on the other hand, took the look to it's most luxurious, pairing a rich, deep color with a pop of leopard. How will we ever decide who wore it better? Let's go a little deeper into the looks, shall we?
